    Unhappy Bench Warrant

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Minnesota.

    I had a bench warrant issued against me because I missed a court appearance. My attorney asked for a continuence, but it was denied.(I had the stomach flu). They came to my house and arrested me. The officer asked me to step outside and I hesitated, so he grabbed me and pulled me out and cuffed me. My questions are; Do I have to open the door, and can he reach inside pull me out? Thanks.

    You don't have to open the door, but they can come in and get you anyway.
    Yes they can drag you if you won't go voluntarily.
